Welcome to F1 Susie.Lets hope you are a trailblazer.How about Simone de Silvestro at Sauber,Katherine Legge at McLaren etc.?But who is going to be the female virgin driver?Sorry about that,but as Oscar Wilde might have said"I can resist everything except the obvious"

blzbub. it is not even who you know! it is who do you marry!
susie has been in dtm for a few years, as the token female driver for merc. and what has she done? zilch.
where as i do agree that there should be a female driver in f1, they should be there on merit, not on what family connections you have.

Granted Stoddart ( Wolff ) is a handy little peddler, however as far as I am aware she has yet to win a single championship in any junior formula and trawls around at the back in DTM.

It is a bit criminal to see her get this opportunity when you consider the calibre of some of the drivers who have never had the chance :(

Equally it is a very sad day in Williams history that they are resorting to such tactics to raise money :(

Wouldn't it make some sense to employ a development driver who had actually raced an F1 car?

Perhaps Williams see her as the natural replacement for Rubens, just as hormonal but with nicer hair....
